Create YouTube Thumnail with Affinity Designer Tutorial

Showing tutorial for creating a YouTube thumbnail using Affinity Designer. This video focuses on creating a simple gradient using radial selection. Next we create a pixel layer using a textured brush in Pixel Persona. We then set the pixel layer as a mask to the gradient, which creates a cool effect. Also demonstrate how to reverse the gradient.

Also shown is an app developed by me called ThatDesk. ThatDesk is a unique File Manager for Apple’s macOS system. It allows users to create quick navigation shortcuts to file directories as well as Virtual Lists which can host files, folders, and websites.
ThatDesk can be downloaded via Apple’s App Store.
